Re: arsclist Cataloguing Software
Having looked at a number of options and tried unsuccessfully to design a
suitable database for a vintage collection (with suitable auto-insert
functions for matrix and issue dates etc), I think the best way is to have
a software designer build a bespoke database on Access. I am planning on
doing this in the New Year. Off-the-shelf packages I have bought such
as ClassicCollector simply do not have enough flexibility.
